After studying jazz in college, he found his way back to bluegrass. Today Michael plays a unique guitar style that is a fusion of the two styles. Michael performs at 10:00 PM each Tuesday at Rockwood Music Hall and can also be found performing regularly in collaboration with Chris Thile.

One Response to Podcast: Michael Daves

    Thank you for a great interview.

    Michael Daves is very much in the tradition of Jimmy Martin: They don’t just sing or perform a song…every time they step up to the microphone, they destroy it.

    Every. Single. Time.
